Since 1967, Phillips Hardy’s mission has been to deliver projects on time and on budget while leveraging their expertise in a quest for innovation to bring value to their customers. One of Phillips Hardy’s customers has been dealing with aging bridge infrastructure, resulting in increasing construction demands and funding shortfalls.

Phillips Hardy set out to find ways to make infrastructure more resilient, enabling longer lifespans and lower lifecycle costs, while supporting higher traffic demands. That search led them to Helix Steel and its Twisted Steel Micro Rebar™ reinforcement technology..

By incorporating Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforcement into this project, the customer was able to repair the existing bridge deck as opposed to a full replacement of the bridge deck. This process extends the lifespan of bridges that are in need of repair, at a fraction of the cost of a complete deck replacement.
